UNITED THANK OFFERING:
The fall gathering of this offering is underway and will be collected through this month. Envelopes for cash offerings can be found at the back of the church, or you can write a check and designate it for UTO.
This offering is distributed to support mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church and in the provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.
2021 PLEDGE OBLIGATIONS:
Please remember to fulfill your pledge by year end. Thank you for your commitment to our church.
CAP PANTRY UPDATE from Sandi: There is a decline in our USDA deliveries. In May 2021 we received 10,295 pounds of commodities compared to December 2021 we will be receiving 4,821 pounds! A drastic reduction.
We have been averaging a 10% increase in families participating in the pantry the last couple of months. One interesting figure is that in October 2021 we served 45.71% more children than during the month of September 2021. Current needs are soups and items for Thanksgiving such as stuffing mix, instant or quick potatoes and cranberries. When shopping, please consider adding an additional item for the pantry. Thank you!
ECONO FOOD RECEIPTS AND TURKEY BUCKS:
Econo Foods has been purchased by another company. In light of this information, the church will be turning in the collected receipts at the end of this month. Please turn in your receipts as soon as possible. And, we will start collecting TURKEY BUCKS for Lakeshore CAP clients, so those are welcome too. Thank you!
FALL CLEAN-UP AT CTK:
The CTK Junior Warden would like to thank the volunteers for their hard work at the Fall Clean Up this past Saturday: Chris Logan, Dale Logan, Cori McFarlane, and Ken Warren. THANK YOU!
CTK-HN 2021 OUTREACH
Your outreach committee, Barb Graul, Kate Wulle-Dugan, Mary Koski, Cori McFarlane and Joanne Ator worked together this year to identify the needs and programs in our community that can use our support. For the first and second quarter of the year we selected two Lakeshore CAP programs. The Food Pantry and Cradle to Career offer intervention and prevention services for Door County families.
We decided to support a newly planned program at Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin with quarter three outreach funds. The Welcome Baby project will be a collaboration with Door County Medical Center. Families who have first time newborns will be assessed in order to identify any needs that would benefit from services provided in our community. A referral and follow-up process by a case manager will assure that early services are made available.
In years past we have used the fourth quarter outreach allocation to purchase Christmas gifts and gift cards for all members of two to three families referred to us by Feed My People. Last year the committee decided that we would continue the purpose of this project via a different method because the program at Feed My People ended.
This year we divided the 4th quarter $1000 allocation between two charities. Help of Door County, which serves victims of domestic violence, will purchase gifts for clients and their families. Jak’s Place, a program of Lakeshore CAP that provides mental health support activities, will sponsor a Christmastime meal for program participants and other interested individuals.
And again, this year we would like to support the Door County Toys for Kids Program, which distributes toys for local children in need. We ask that you consider a cash donation for this project. Contribution checks can be made to CTK-HN with the annotation, Toys For Kids 2021, and sent to CTK-HN Episcopal Church P.O. Box 828 Sturgeon Bay WI 54235, by December 6, 2021.
We continue to follow the CDC guidelines and practice universal masking for an indoor setting. We will also continue the protocol from before with no singing, and no wine for the Eucharist. We must continue to be vigilant.
